NEW YORK — Showtime says filmmaker Oliver Stone is producing a 10-part documentary series on what he calls the secret history of America.

The series will focus on events of the past 60 years that went underreported when they took place, but crucially shaped the nation's history.

Showtime says newly discovered information on the Kennedy administration, the Vietnam War and America's role in the world since the fall of communism will be explored.

Stone, the Academy Award-winning director of "Platoon" and "Born on the Fourth of July," will serve as executive producer and narrator for the series. It's set to debut next year on Showtime.
